The Cleveland NAACP recently passed a resolution endorsing Raise Up Cleveland’s fight for a $15 minimum wage.
According to a news release, Raise Up Cleveland Spokesperson Minister Kyle Earley released the following statement in response:
“We are so grateful for the Cleveland NAACP’s support of our efforts to lift up families in Cleveland by giving voters the chance to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour. Too many people in Cleveland play by the rules, get up and go to work each day, and struggle to survive on a starving wage. Unfortunately, this is disproportionately unfair for minorities in our community. Working people deserve a living wage. We know the people are with us in this fight, and the NAACP’s endorsement further proves this fact.
